    Had a PERFECT night with a couple of appetizers and perfectly prepared steaks. Veggies needed a little more 'love' in their preparation.

    Bloomington steakhouse staple everyone should try once! The steak and ribs were really good and we will go back just for the meats. We were not impressed with their meatballs that are a crowd favorite.

    It’s a Bloomington classic but way overpriced and the food is nothing special. Partially frozen inside of crab legs. Drippy salad. I get the character of it, but at some point it’s just not worth it.

    I’ve been eating here ever since I energy to school at IU. I haven’t been back for awhile until yesterday. The food seems even better than I remember it. Do not miss a chance to eat here. Sure it’s a little pricey, but you will not be disappointed.

    The food was very good but was served on plates that were too small for the amount of food on them. We ordered ribs that were served in a massive amount of aluminum foil so we had to move the ribs to a plate ourselves. Then we had the aluminum foil sitting on our small table. There were too many tables in the restaurant with little to no privacy for customers. We were sitting very close to the adjoining tables which was uncomfortable. Our table was next to the cash register where there shouldn't have been a table. The steaks were very good but for the price of them, the restaurant should have had ambiance and extras (tableclothes and candles). I would not go back the Janko's.

    The food has always been great, although our rolls were burnt last night. Steaks and meatballs are outstanding. It would be nice if they had a full bar. The place needs updating. Bench seats are uncomfortable. A bit pricey. We only go there for special occasions.

    Cbelle was our waitress.... absolutely beautiful and so charming. Ally was our server ... beautiful smile and great! Both girls were awesome. The manager was so nice as well. I would love to see the Red Checkered table clothes back. It just adds to the ambiance. The food is off the charts!! Always will be coming back when I visit my daughter at Indiana University.

    If you are in the mood for a fabulous steak, you will not be disappointed. if you are looking for a fine dining experience, this is not your place. It's a little hole in the wall place with great food. We happened to be there while John Cougar Mellencamp was dining with his family, which was super cool.

    The steak itself is pretty good, but the sports bar ambience and cafeteria style side dishes leave a lot to be desired. For the same price you could eat at a much nicer steakhouse in Indy, but sadly Janko’s is the only place in town.
